Re: Do You Think We'll Trade Down In The Draft?

We need to trade down or possibly re-sign Marcus Washington. We won't be able to plug 2 or more rookies into the starting lineup with the selections we have now. Saying that, It points to the team perhaps looking to draft a DE, possibly LSU's Tyson Jackson. Why re-sign over-the-hill insurance policies Daniels and Wynn if not looking to bring youth into the fold?

I think teams realize it is more of a crapshoot and that the best bet is to throw as many darts against the wall as possible. I would be happy, but very surprised if we trade down.
But Joe, last year we did trade down!

I think teams are more reluctant to trade up to the top 10, both because of the cost in trade (usually picks) & the huge contract they have to pay a rookie. Our pick at 13 on the other hand, is right in the middle of good value but fairly safe players that are likely starters for several years. Teams will trade up for a qb no matter what if there's a guy they want.

With numerous teams holding extra picks they can play with, I think trade offers will be there, just depends on what teams are offering. If I was a GM, I would look to trade w/the Skins because they've shown a willingness to do so. They've also shown a willingness to get suckered, but that's another story!

Re: Do You Think We'll Trade Down In The Draft?

In order to trade down, I think you need to ask yourself if the guy(s) you want will still be available in the spot that you are planning to trade down to. If the answer is no, then I wouldn't trade down.

If there's nobody that you think would be available that you would want at 13, then trading down is a no-brainer - but I don't that's the case.

Trade down and get Eben Britton. Then take a top rate Center or OLB with the next two picks. That would be a hell of a draft day for me. Of course they'll probably take some position that I don't expect them to take within their first two picks (3 if they trade down). I'm betting on S, CB, or WR. Then we get to hear the awesome BPA argument though I don't know when all these BPA's are going to get a chance to get reps outside the scout team (see Rhinehart).

I agree about trading down and I think Britton would be a good selection, but I would like to see a olb or de with the gains on the trade down. Players that have young legs who can run around, hopefully creating havoc on the defensive end for us.
